A Safety Message for Business Owners

Alejandro Cowo

Earlier in the newscast, we told you about the string of robberies at businesses in the Cayo District. As you heard, the robbers pretended to be customers and others are believed to have monitored the businesses before they struck. Today the Police Department issued a special safety message for business owners. ASP Alejandro Cowo urges business owners to be alert during the Easter holiday.

“We have been advising business owners that they must be careful and must be vigilant as to persons entering their business establishment; to pay keen attention to them and also not to have a large quantity of cash with them in the store. If you are a business owner and you know that during the day you have sold an x amount of goods and you have an x amount of cash, you should find somewhere to store it  and don’t’ leave it inside your shop. Also, they must be very observant as to who is entering their business establishment. We are noticing that most of these businesses that have been robbed, these persons have been previously in the business to monitor the situation and then later on they come back to execute the robberies.”
